You need to have a video card that is capable of a TV output. If you have this then check the software that came with the card.

You just connect the S-Video cable to your laptop, and the other end into your TV, press FN+F5 until you get the display combination you want, and that's it.

That depends. What video out options does your laptop have? What video in options does your TV have?

If it has s video just hook laptop s-video to TV. You can get this cable for it somewhere I cant remember where

No, unless your laptop has a TV-in or S video in port

If your laptop has a video out option that's compatible with your TV's video in options, you use that. Otherwise, you pretty much DON'T watch YouTube on TV from your laptop.

You will usually need an S-video cable to connect the laptop to the television - the S-video output on your laptop to the S-video input on your television. This is not a cable that comes with every laptop. If you want sound, you will also need to make that connection - usually from the headphone jack on your computer to the stereo in on your television. For more detailed information, check the link below.

Generally, there is an S-video port on the laptop. Not all TVs, however, have S-video. In that case, either an RF modulator or an adapter that switches from S-video to composite is necessary.

Yes you can. Just make sure in display properties you have selected s-Video out as the secondary display and make sure projector has S-Video as the input source.

If your video chipset supports it, you can do a screen rotate with your computer's control panel for the video chipset (if it's Intel, it will be within Windows' display properties).

Most Laptops come with an "S-video" port. If your TV can support S-Video you can buy a S-Video cable and connect it to the TV. If the TV does not come with a S Video input port you may want to look for an S-Video to RCA converter. which will provide you the Video Out in the same format as connecting a DVD player to the TV. (For Audio you can use your laptop speakers or can get another set of cable that can use the headphone outlet) Once you have made the connections- assuming you are running Windows- right click on desktop- select properties- go to the settings tab- you should see your TV in list of display- select the TV and click apply. (You may want to adjust the screen resolution to match your TV)

Use a USB TV turner or expresscard TV turner, those video divices have coaxial and RCA input

Computer monitors can easily display TV signals, usually through an S-Video or HDMI connection.

You don't need an app to stream video to TV. You can just use an HDMI cable to connect the laptop to the TV.

HDMI cables are used as digital video and data links between video sources and televisions. HDMI is compatible with DVI interfaces so if the laptop has a DVI output, a DVI to HDMI cable can be used. If the laptop does not have HDMI or DVI, then there is no way to connect the VGA output to an HDMI input. There are several USB based video displays that can be purchased to connect to the laptop. The display can be used as a copy of the internal screen or it can extend the desktop across both screens. Select a display port that has either DVI or HDMI outputs.

On a radio there is only audio and on the television there is a video display as well as audio. A

theres many ways to get a video off of a computer onto your tv. Some of the ways are: if the computer/laptop has a hdmi port, along with the tv you could play the video from your laptop onto your tv screen you can copy the video onto an empty disc and then you could watch that with your dvd player

If your laptop has an S-video socket on it, it is most likely for OUTPUT only. It allows you to display your computer screen on a television but does not take into your computer any information from an external device such as the DVR. In order to bring information outputted by the DVR into your computer, you need a 'video capture device' installed on your computer. Since this is a laptop, get a USB video capture device, not PCI card, and its bundled software will allow you to watch and capture/record what is outputted by the DVR using your computer.

You will need an s-video cable and that's about it. Plug the cable into the laptop & into the back of the TV. Power up the laptop and the tv and set the tv to view the proper input signal. The laptop may not send a signal to the svideo port until you tell it to. Look for a key marked "Fn" This is called a function modifier key, and pressing it in concert with other keys on the keyboard trigger certain hardware functions. There will be a series of keys that have little subscripts or icons printed on them, ususally in the same color that the "Fn" key is printed with. Look for one that has a little picture that looks like a tv screen. Pressing Fn and the screen button will cycle the laptop through several display modes, one of which will be s-video output. Note that S-video will not send the audio to your tv, for that you will need a separate cable.

RadioShack and bestbuy and other electronic specialty stores, have s-video coverters, that can allow you to plug in through RF or RCA.

it extracts the video signal amplify it & sends it to picture tube for display.

A VGA cord would only give you the display from a laptop to a tv and would not be in hd. A hdmi cord is fully hd and also delivers the sound and display to a tv.

It is a device or component that reads a video recording, like a DVD/VHS player, and sends the information to a display device like a TV. A video input device can also be a camera that records video and sends the information to a storage device and can also display the captured images on a TV.

Step 1: First, familiarize yourself with different S-Video cables that you can use to connect your laptop to TV. It also depends on what type of TV you will use... old CRT TV or Digital TV (HDTV). S-Video cable - is a connector with 4-pin DIN (male) on both ends. Use this if your TV is digital. Take note that this cable is for video transmission only. S-Video to RCA cable - is a connector with 4-pin DIN (male) on one end and RCA on the other end. Use this cable if your TV is CRT type. Take note that this cable is also for video transmission only. S-Video to 3 RCA cable - has two connector on one end for 4-pin DIN (male) and Stereo Audio as the input and three RCA connector on the other end for Video and Audio output. This is the complete set that you would want to have if you want both Video and Audio to output from the TV. You can use this on both CRT type and HDTV. Mini-to-RCA cable - has mini jack on one end and two RCA connectors on the other end for audio transmission. Use this if you only have S-Video or S-Video to RCA cables. Step 2: Now let's start the connection. If your TV is CRT, you have to use either S-Video cable or S-Video to RCA cable because it does not have S-Video port. If you use S-Video cable, plug one end of the cable to S-Video port of your laptop and the RCA connector end to the RCA Video input of the TV. For the audio, use the mini-to-RCA cable to transmit the audio to your TV. You can also choose to use PC speakers if you have one. If you use S-Video to 3 RCA cable, then you have both Audio and Video outputted to your TV. Connect the S-Video connector to the port on your laptop as well as the mini jack for the Audio. The other end, which is the 3 RCA connectors, should be connected to your TV Audio and Video input. If your TV is Digital or HDTV, you can use any of the three S-Video cables. Connect the cables in the same manner as the CRT TV. Only difference is you have the option to use S-Video cable because HDTV has S-Video port like your laptop computer. Step 3: Switch your TV to AV or INPUT mode. Step 4: PC: Press Function (Fn) + Video Output (usually F4) key and your laptop LCD should now turn black and the output will display on TV. Now, some laptops have option to display the screen on both the laptop LCD and the TV (dual screen) so you need to press Video Output key twice while holding the Function (Fn) key to toggle. That's it... now you can enjoy a widescreen experience watching movies on your laptop computers. When you are done, just press again Function (Fn) + Video Output to toggle the screen back to your laptop computer.
